Stephanie Wolfe, a 6th grade teacher at Chewelah’s Gess Elementary School, was recently awarded both the VFW Post 2047 Teacher of the Year award and the VFW District 9 Teacher of the Year award.
“Stephanie was selected because she goes above and beyond to promote good citizenship and patriotism in the classroom.” Post 2047 Commander Ben Paramore noted before presenting the Post’s award to Wolfe.
VFW District 9 Commander Dale Storer echoed those praises while presenting the District 9 award to her. After the local VFW Post selected their recipient, Wolfe’s name was submitted to the statewide VFW District 9 Teacher of the Year committee.
